Pick A Pumpkin Birthday Ideas

Have a fall birthday you need a card for? I always have several cards I need this time of year. The following cards were made for the design team I'm on over at InkBig Academy Stamps. I think the different elements worked really well for birthday-type cards and even think the first card would work well for a man. 

I used sentiments from various other stamp sets. Unless noted, all products Stampin' Up!

Love how repeating the sentiment across the strip in the center looks! 

I inked up the largest pumpkin (except for the stem) and repeatedly stamped it with Smoky Slate and Crumb Cake to create this background. Change the font to something more masculine and it would work for a man too. A snippet of cheesecloth and frayed linen thread is under the sentiment. 

This color combo is Basic Gray, Smoky Slate and Crumb Cake. I used a bit of cheesecloth for interest on this card. The vine type image is from the Thoughts and Prayers stamp set.

  1. Hi Kim, These are very nice cards. I think the second card, with the largest pumpkin, inked in green, could pass for a wonderful summer watermelon as well. What do you think?
    Have a great weekend.
